I love reading about the different techniques and pros and cons of each because it really helps me experiment and find out what works best for me and each one of my rifles. Lots of pictures or even videos would be very helpful on articles of this nature.
I couldn't agree more about different people and their methods. That's a great angle that I hadn't yet thought of. A collaborative effort between two people with radically different shooting styles would be a GREAT read. The readers could see the contrast in styles and see how they are both effective, but different.
One thing I would like to add is for a potential article that addressed practicing methods and techniques
. What I mean specifically would be giving newer guys some coaching on proper breath control, shooting in relation to your heartbeat, is it preferred that the shooter waits for the calmest winds in practice before firing, or whether it's thought best to fire in any wind to better learn how wind velocities affect bullet flight.........things like that are often on my mind.

Yeah as that idea was unfolding, I was looking out my living room window at the wind howling and thought...."man, sure would be a rough day to try to shoot long range"....then it hit me...lol. Would it be better practice (although a bit depressing) to shoot in wind like this, or does that just open myself up for a confidence drop?
